Here he is finally, fire and all. I voted against the wings, it seemed to distracting from the flames. I also skipped the feet flames, it just seemed to much. Next time I will probably make all the red parts here yellow instead. Since the flames are yellow and orange the red tends to stick out but not like I had intended. Can't crochet a horn small enough to work, so I used a trimmed down pipe cleaner. Love this yarn, it's wispy and wild like fire, except it was a pain to dye it that way. I could only find white, and at $8 a roll, I wasn't about to buy more that one.
Anyway, this originally came from the "Elements" theme in our group
but then I got an idea to make something else for it. I had intended on making a Gryphon for this
Mythology contest, but instead I decided to submit this guy. I actually finished the Gryphon, its just hard to pose it in the way I saw in my head, so I will post it later. Not the typical picture that comes to mind when you think of Mythology, but I looked at the other submissions and they are breaking free of their boundaries, so can I.
Yes, I know I've posed almost every horse I've made in this pose, but there is just something so awesome about this. Standing around is boring, haha. June, always having something to say, tells me this is my new Satan Rapidash. She's already threatening to kidnap him and let him live with 'Fever' www.pickleweasel360.deviantart…
***EDIT: You can get the basic horse pattern now on my Etsy page. Foals can also be bought on the same listing: www.etsy.com/listing/162311822…
It doesn't include how to make the horn or the flame hair, but you could customize it after you make the basic pattern.
